World Health Day 2020
The 7th of April 2020 witnesses World Health day, a day in which a specific area of healthcare is globally celebrated. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organisation.
Over the past 50 years this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and child care and climate change. The celebration is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and serves as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health.
This year will see the day celebrate the work of nurses and midwives and remind world leaders of the critical role they play in keeping the world healthy.
Nurses and other health workers are at the forefront of COVID-19 response - providing high quality, respectful treatment and care, leading community dialogue to address fears and questions and, in some instances, collecting data for clinical studies. Quite simply, without nurses, there would be no response. To celebrate World Health Day 2020 we have chosen 5 of our healthcare awards to say a big thank you to healthcare providers across the globe.
Creative Awards London are honoured to have been involved with the Teenage Cancer Trust's Royal Albert Hall concerts. The charity has, for over 18 years, rocked the venue in order to raise funds and awareness to combat cancer in young people. The bespoke award was created in close collaboration with artist, designer and director Jamie Hewlett of Gorillaz and Tank Girl fame. The resin statue created from an original design by Jamie features a cast aluminium guitar and rests upon a wooden base. Each award is finished with a signature from Roger Daltrey who is patron of the remarkable charity.
Designed in conjunction with a leading healthcare institution, the Metal Profile Award is an elegant and minimalist design. The logo of the organisation, inspired by the silhouette of a certain surgical tool, was cut out from satin finished, plated aluminium to create a negative space. Mounted on a solid, black acrylic base the award celebrates the precision and skill of the members of The European Association for Osseointegration
Celebrating the very best in the logistics and supply chains of the healthcare industry, the Gold Key on Blue Acrylic Base award has a crisp and precise design. A gold key was hand cut and finished to create the crown of this bespoke award. The custom cast blue base of the award is a nod towards the blues used in the healthcare industry. To finish, the award was hand polished and engraved to ensure the bright blue body, rounded metal key and lettering elegantly contrasted to stunning effect.
Bupa Blue Aluminium Award
A fresh and contemporary bespoke award commissioned by one of the world's biggest private healthcare providers. The BUPA Blue Aluminium Award is made entirely from aircraft grade metal. A colour matched blue ECG logo forms the body of the award that rests on an all metal base with the instantly recognisable logo of the company and award details. This modern and sleek award was produced especially by BUPA to celebrate startups and small businesses that partnered with the company to approach vital customer challenges in insurance, health and care experiences and wellbeing change.
Biomarin is a leading pharmaceutical company that is at the forefront of developing Brineura (cerliponase alfa) which was the first approved treatment of Batten disease. Inspired by the life-changing breakthrough that the medication provides, the Creative Awards London created the Acrylic Flower Award. The soft lines form the backbone to the custom made acrylic award. Featuring floral imagery and optically clear acrylic, the body of the award was precision profiled from a single piece of acrylic showcasing the potential for growth and transformation that the treatment provides.
On behalf of all at the team at Creative Awards London, we would like to thank all involved in the healthcare industry on World Health Day 2020. Stay safe!
